About Author

Welcome to my About Author page. I'm Trevor Maurice, owner and author of this website. I really appreciate you taking the time to look over my site. I hope you find it both interesting and helpful :))

I'm an Australian, living in the beautiful seaside suburb of Maroubra, in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. I've been involved in playing guitar (mainly classical) for longer than I care to remember and have also taught the instrument for many years. I am teacher trained, having a Diploma of Education (Majoring in music)...

About my teacher training...

well, it's been 27 years since I received that diploma of teaching. It seems only five years ago but I must admit, a lot of water has gone under the bridge in terms of my teaching experiences. No matter whether it was at school, or teaching the guitar, everything has enabled me to gather a 'pool' of skills and ideas. Lucky for you because I can pass a lot of those ideas onto you, whether it's actually playing the guitar better technically, or finding smarter and better ways of making it easier for you to learn the guitar.

If you're serious about learning classical guitar look around the site because there are many focus and study points to learn from and absorb. Importantly, you'll want to both take your time AND be persistent in your approach to playing classical because the technique required doesn't come overnight.

Like anything good and worthwhile you need to devote time and effort to it but the rewards will be self-evident as you start to improve. Happily, as your skills grow you get better faster because it's like a snowballing effect. It's really exhilarating when you realize you are playing the music you've always wanted to and your friends and family will be mightily impressed with your musicianship and skills...Go for it!

Here are some pages that may help to get you started...

The beginner guitar lesson series contains ten videos and PDF's that allow you to practice the beginning skills of classical guitar so that you slowly but surely develop your technical skills in a steady and logical way. Click here to go to the Beginner's Page...

Once you've mastered these pieces you can move up to some more technically challenging music that also has both videos and free PDF's to help you improve your skills further...

WARNING!!! - These pieces will be too hard if you've not at the very least mastered the Beginning Series...
